Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7: Ready Bulldozer
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The launch of the AMD "Scorpius" platform for the performance desktop PC featuring the upcoming Bulldozer processor is finally in motion at Computex 2011 with the releasing of the AMD 9 series chipset. While we have to wait a little longer until we can get our hands on the Bulldozer, the launching of the 9 series chipset from various motherboard manufacturers means that the processor should be coming very soon.

Intel Z68 SSD Disk Caching Showdown
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we tested out Intel's 'Smart Response Technology' last month, we liked what we saw. But at $110 for a 20GB SLC SSD, we wondered if a larger, more cost-effective option could still make the best use of the technology. With that, we're pitting Kingston's SSDNow V+100 64GB drive, at $150, against Intel's, to see if we retain SRT's effectiveness.

Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5
     Sun, Jun 26 2011 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“With all the hype surrounding AMD's upcoming Bulldozer release, manufacturers have been scrambling to ship 990 and 970 chipset motherboards. However you look at it, AMD's delay with the new CPU architecture has at least allowed them to get all the new models ready in preparation for the upcoming launch. As usual, Gigabyte has their editions ready to fly and today we are looking at the 990FXA-UD5 see what changes this sleek and sexy motherboard compares to its predecessor, the 890FXA-UD5. The new board has some significant changes to let's jump right to it and take a closer look at the Gigabyte 990FX-UD5.”

ASUS M5A99X EVO (AMD 990X) Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jun 26 2011 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At the end of last month during Computex we saw the AMD 990FX chipset launch which brought with it some strong features. One of the more appealing ones was that it supports the new Bulldozer CPUs that are due out later this year. Because AMD aren't changing the socket, though, for the first generation of Bulldozer we can have boards now that support it while also supporting the current crop of CPUs from AMD. At launch we looked at the Crosshair V Formula from ASUS. It's a great board, but at $239.99 US it might be a bit more money than you want to spend. In steps the M5A99X EVO from ASUS; priced at $164.99 US it might be a more attractive option for you and your bank account. At $75 US less, is the M5A99X EVO an option that people really want to look at, though? What does $75 US less get you? We'll find that out and more today as we dive into the M5A99X EVO. Outside of being part of the ROG series, the board we're looking at also carries the 990X chipset instead of the 990FX chipset we saw on the C4F."

ASUS P8Z68-V Motherboard Review
     Sat, Jun 25 2011 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This is evident with the ASUS P8Z68-V motherboard. The ASUS P8Z68-V shaves a little off the top to make it a much more attractive and affordable motherboard. We still get almost identical features to the V-PRO. There is the Intel Z68 Express Chipset which supports both iGPU and CPU overclocking. The LGA1155 socket supports the newest Intel Sandybridge processors. There is memory support up to 2200MHz (O.C). Max capacity tops off at 32GB. The P8Z68-V includes 16 phase power and DIP2 technology. DIP2 uses the EPU and TPU in tandem for total system control. It also allows excellent power saving and overclocking abilities. Because the P8Z68-V allows the use of the iGPU, there is support for Intel Quick Sync."

ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Professional Motherboard Review
     Fri, Jun 24 2011 | 6:22P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The gaming performance of the ASRock Fatal1ty Professional P67 motherboard was right on track with all of the Intel P67 offerings that we have looked at so far. In fact, it was even able to lead the pack at times. If I could change anything about the ASRock Fatal1ty Professional P67 motherboard there wouldn't be much. The only feature I would change is eliminating the IDE and Floppy headers. If this were an entry level motherboard, sure throw them on there for people looking to use the old hardware out of an existing system. The ASRock Fatal1ty Professional is aimed at the enthusiast market, and very few are going to use a floppy disk drive or an old and out-dated IDE hard drive..."

Gigabyte 990 FXA-UD7 review
     Fri, Jun 24 2011 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Man, look at what we are reviewing today, it is the 990FXA-UD7 from Gigabyte, recently they kicked out the baby blue color schema and went all black. This motherboards seriously has to be the most breathtaking thing to look at ever, from Gigabyte that is. AMD completely released the 990FX chipset in the wrong time, it should have been released alongside the Bulldozer FX series processors. But ah well, what can you do .. have a peek at that crazy sexy looking UD7 and then let's head onwards into our review.

ASUS P8H67-I Deluxe H67 mITX Motherboard Review
     Mon, Jun 20 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What was the first thing they made after the wheel was invented? I am not sure about what Wikipedia has to say, but to the best of my understanding, it was probably my friend's old school Mazda -- which finally decided to kick the bucket a few weeks ago. To commemorate its death after years of unfaithful service, I decided to poke some fun at him, and brought him to the local junkyard -- also known as a Hyundai dealership -- to check out what the future has in store for him. When I sat down inside the brand new 2011 Elantra parked inside the showroom after gawking at its obnoxiously overdone and fundamentally awkward interpretation of the company's "fluidic sculpture" theme, a pretty female salesperson about our age (I'm 20) walked over and greeted us. She highlighted a few features of the car, and then allowed us to explore on our own. Right after she turned around, I got out of the driver's seat, and leaned over to my friend, who was standing outside. "I think I like the girl more", I said. My friend nodded in agreement. "Yeah, she's prettier than anything around here." (His sister, on the other hand, wasn't very pleased.) My point is, despite the fact there is usually nothing good inside a Hyundai dealership, there can be exceptions. There can be surprises. In the same way, when is the last time you've looked at some compact mini-ITX PC and thought to yourself, "This thing must be one underpowered computer for people who don't care about performance?" Well, as the old saying goes, don't judge a book by its cover. If it has an ASUS P8H67-I Deluxe mITX motherboard under the hood, then don't pee your pants when it smokes the riced out full tower PC next to it. Featuring a standard LGA 1155 socket for the latest Intel Sandy Bridge processors, a PCI Express x16 slot to accommodate the graphics card of your choice, what we have here is some serious awesomeness in a very compact package. Ready to find out more? Let's roll.

GIGABYTE P67A-UD7-B3 Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jun 19 2011 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One of the areas that many of us (myself included) want to know about when purchasing a shiny new motherboard, is the overclocking potential. Well I'm here to tell you, the GIGABYTE P67A-UD7-B3 has plenty! I was able to bring the Intel Core i5 2500K to a new high with the P67A-UD7-B3. Enabling the Internal PLL Voltage and Level 10 Load-Line calibration to reduce the V-Droop we were able to bring our Intel Core i5 2500K to 5141MHz. That is nearly 100MHz better than we have been able to achieve previously..."

GIGABYTE Z68X-UD7-B3: Z68 Chipset With Smart Response
     Fri, Jun 17 2011 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GIGABYTE Z68X-UD7-B3 motherboard has an MSRP of $370, about $20 more than the P67A-UD7 when it was launched. This is expected because of the more expensive chipset and the extra features that come with the motherboard. It will be the users' choice between the P67A-UD7-B3 or the Z68X-UD7-B3 motherboards depending on the features that they will need.

The P67A-GD80
     Fri, Jun 17 2011 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"MSI continues to impress us with the amount of custom features and applications they bundle with their products. The P67A-GD80 proved to be a supreme overclocker with almost unlimited possibilities for enthusiasts who like to tweak with voltages and test the stability of their entire system. The addition of "military-grade" components is a great feature to build a marketing campaign around, and the fact that it also improves the stability and efficiency of the P67A-GD80 just gives MSI and this motherboard more street credit than ever before."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
